When you take a good look at your driveway, have you noticed it changing from a rich, deep black to a muted gray? This is an indication of your asphalt oxidizing, a natural process that can lead to significant wear and tear over time. The main component of asphalt, bitumen - a petroleum-based product, binds together aggregates like sand, crushed stone, and gravel to form a flexible and robust surface. However, as oxidation occurs, bitumen starts to break down, leading to a loss of flexibility and leaving your driveway more susceptible to cracking.
Sealcoating is an effective way to slow down this oxidation process and is something we highly recommend for every driveway. By adding a protective layer over your asphalt, sealcoating effectively preserves the bitumen and keeps your asphalt pliable. This increased flexibility helps to minimize the risk of cracks forming, ensuring that your driveway remains in prime condition for longer.
Remember, your driveway isn't just a practical element; it’s part of your home's curb appeal. A well-maintained, sealcoated driveway not only stands up better to daily wear and tear but also enhances the overall look of your property. Invest in sealcoating to extend the life and beauty of your driveway with Erickson Asphalt.
Have you ever considered how much your driveway endures? From the constant weight of vehicles to harsh weather conditions and occasional spills of chemicals like oil, gas, or antifreeze, it faces several challenges. Luckily, sealcoating provides a robust solution. It not only safeguards your asphalt from the damage caused by these elements but also offers several other benefits.
Sealcoating fills in the minor cracks in your driveway, stopping water from seeping into the base, which can cause more serious damage over time. This process provides an additional wear layer, shielding the aggregate in the asphalt from wear and tear, and giving your driveway a longer lifespan. Moreover, sealcoating can boost the aesthetic value of your property by restoring your asphalt's original dark black color. This is a straightforward and cost-effective way to enhance your home's curb appeal. Additionally, it improves skid resistance, creating a safer surface for vehicles and pedestrians.

Sealcoating typically takes 4-8 hours to dry, but it is recommended to wait at least 24 hours before driving on it. Factors such as temperature, relative humidity, and direct sunlight can affect the drying time.
Sealing your driveway every three years is recommended, but depending on the weather and traffic conditions, you may need to seal coat more frequently.
Sand is added to sealcoating to provide greater traction and a uniform surface texture for improved safety and performance.
The best time of year to apply sealcoating is between May and September, when the temperature is at least 55 degrees overnight.
Sealcoating can fill hairline cracks, but nothing large than that. For larger cracks, we will apply a hot rubber crack sealer. Sealcoating and crack sealer will not make the cracks disappear, but it will help protect them from getting worse.
